7:08 am
i'm not. i'm not angry at all. hurt. i'm absolutely hurt. >> reporter: jimmy drake is coping with the loss of his son, 32-year-old darren drake who lived with his parents in new jersey. together, they tried to reach him after hearing about tuesday's attack. >> we said, what are the odds of darren being out in a 30-second period of time that the guy came driving by? but then as the day went on, no darren. >> reporter: jimmy and his wife identified darren's body wednesday. >> i think i'd rather have every tube pulled out without any kind of novocaine than go through this. >> reporter: 23-year-old nicholas cleave was the youngest victim, a new york, the software engineer lived just blocks away from where the rampage started. a mother of two from belgium also died. her husband told a belgium newspaper the 31-year-old was the most beautiful mom. was with family on the bike path

7:10 am
have help, and what drove him to do it? >> so that's a key question for us. right now, we're kind of going backwards on the joint terrorism task force with the fbi through all his communication, those of which we can get and we can see. trying to figure out is this inspired? just got all this off the internet? was it enabled? was he communicating with isis officials over encrypted channels or was it directed with this part of the plan? at this point, we don't see anything that lead us to believe there's anyone else involve bud i caution we're a day or two into this. >> you believe he was self-radicalized? >> it appears from what we know now, and this could change, that he was radicalized after he came to the united states. >> i keep thinking, john, how tough it is, looking at mr. drake, talking about that he's not angry that he's hurt. i keep thinking how hard it must be for the victim's families just bragging about what he's done, gleeful about what he's done, showing no remorse.
7:11 am
i want to hear more about that from the law enforcement point of view. what that means to hear this guy bragging about it and what -- the fact he's alive certainly is an advantage, what you hope to learn from him now. >> when you capture a live terrorist, you have the ability to question that person and if you're able to glean a lot about those things, were they part of a larger network, is this something bigger, were they acting alone. you can also go deeper into those questions about what brought you to this point. and there are former defendants in cases like this where we've learned a lot about the arc of their radicalization. and what we're seeing today is in the united states, a great deal of that is just done online. >> can i ask you, president trump said yesterday that saipov potentially brought 23 people with him when he came to the united states. what do you know about the president's claim? >> nothing about that. i think he seems to be referring
7:12 am
to other people that came in that visa program. part of that program is once you get here, you have the opportunity to bring family members. >> but no suggestions there are 23 other people -- >> or any number. >> -- might be suspected in a terror plot? >> i think that might be a stretch. >> what did you learn from the note? >> the note has a lot of potential significance. what the note says is not terribly informative. it says the islamic state will endure forever multiple times on a couple of pieces of paper. but the fact that there was a note left at the scene in the truck on the ground means he was following the isis instructions which says if you're going to do this you need to claim credit for isis or we won't know you're one of us. and to yell it out, post it online or their magazine even suggested leaving leaflets. this seems to touch on that last piece. >> how will which break through this arc of radicalization you talked about? >> charlie, this is something
7:13 am
that has vexed us since 9/11 when the u.s. government started looking at this. and it is a prescription that is very hard for the government to deliver. this is something that we have been in discussions with the larger muslim community about how to do and we're not there yet. we have no effective countermethod today. >> thank you, john. a manhunt is under way for a gunman who killed three people at a denver area walmart. police released this photo of the suspect. they say the gunman walked into the store last night and started shooting people at random. witnesses say he drove away in a red mitsubishi mirage. cell phone video shows the mutual mart moments after the shooting. it happened in colorado, just north of denver. vladimir duthier is here with the unfolding investigation. >> reporter: two men died at the scene. the third victim, a woman, died a short time later at a nearby hospital. police say the victims were all in the same area of the store but they do not know if they knew each other.
7:14 am
[ sirens ] police swarm this denver walmart within minutes of the first 911 call. >> we were just hearing this popping noise. >> reporter: inside the store with her son. >> i just see all the people, you know, falling down because we were really scared. she said, they're shooting. >> reporter: the police said the shooter walked into the store with a hand gun and started firing. >> we determined it's random as of right now because there was no direction. the person came in and just shot towards a group. >> reporter: adam was paying for groceries when he heard the gunfire. >> iecause i didn't know what to think. then i heard two more shots. i hit the ground. >> reporter: one woman said her 15-year-old son called her from inside the store. >> he was near the shooter. the gun was going off. and he just called. he said, i'm at 1%, my battery's ready to die, but there's a shooter here at walmart, but if anything happens to me, i love
7:15 am
you guys, i love you all so much. >> this is a very heinous act. you know, we don't know exactly what the motive of the person was. but it was certainly a terrible act. >> reporter: and we have late breaking information from our denver station kcnc. police just took the suspect into custody after a police chase. officials say there is no indication this shooting was an act of terror, charlie. >> vlad, thank you. president trump will meet today with house republicans after he unveiled the long awaited details of the tax plan. it would be the first major tax overhaul in three decades. nancy cordes is on capitol hill with what we could see in the plan. nancy, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. house gop lawmakers are getting their first look at the plan in a closed door meeting happening behind me right now. but here's what we can tell you that we know so far. this plan would shrink the
7:16 am
number of income tax brackets but leave the current top tax bracket, 39.6%, in place. the lowest rate, other than zero of course, would be 12%, rather than the current 10%. the standard deduction would double from $12,000 to $24,000. the home mortgage interest deduction would stay in place. and americans would still be able to deduct their property taxes. the deduction for state and local taxes, however, would go away. this is very controversial but gop leaders have said they have come up with a fix for people from high-tax states like new york and california. we will find out today whether that's good enough for gop lawmakers from those states who had raised concerns. now, it is difficult to evaluate right now how much this plan would cost what it would mean for middle class taxpayers. because it hasn't been evaluated yet. it was still being worked out as of late last night. >> all right, thank you very much, nancy. the houston astros are world
